Death of Mrs, T. J. Thomaft.
Fr'm Monday's Daily.
The many friends of Mr. and Mrs.
T. J. Thomas were shocked this morn
ing to learn of the sudden death of
Mis Thomas, who was thought to be
getting better f im an illness not
necessarily serious in its nature. The
dread messenger came unannounced
and without warning. Mrs. Thomas
had teen up and was going back to
hed about 6 o'clock this morning, and
as she sat upon the side of the bed she
seemed to faint and fell over. Her
daughter was had'y frightened and
fainted, a younger member of the fam
ily called a physician at once, and
when lie arrived the daughter had
recovered, but the mother had gone
to tho better world, heart failure being
tho immediate cause of dissolution.
The deceased, Albina 1. Thomas,
was tho eldest daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Ij G. Todd, and was the first
white girl bom in Cass county, the
date being February 27, 1S56. She
was married to T. J. Thomas Novem
ber 20, 1S73, and six children survive
her viz: George, Susana, Galena, Vic
tor, Zillah and Sylvia, the latter being
the youngest is eight years of age.
The deceased was a model wife and
mother, ever forgetful of self and
thoughtful of the comfort and hap
piness of otheis. No mother could
have been more devoted to her hus
band and children, and it is with deep
est regret of the entire community
that her death is noted.
Tho funeral will occur Wednesday
afternoon at 2 o'clock from the resi

The disappearance of Mr. Sprlecko's
herd of cattle, which has attracted so
much attention in the local press the
past few days, is one of thofte myster
ies in criminal circlos which is hard
to fathom. Mr. Spriecke, after the
cattle had been miusod several days,
advertised hta loss in tho Courier at
Louisville. From what wo can learn
of the circumstances, Mr. Spriecke
has a very indefinite idea of when his
cattle Vtrayed." Investigating tho
case today we learn that a bunch of
cattle closely answering their de
scription was shipped out ovor tho
B. & M. iu this city for South Omaha
on election day, April 5. The cattle
were billed out by a party whose
name was given as James Martin. He
is not recognized by parties acquain
ted with stock shippers in this com
munity. The affair is shrouded in
mystery and it is more than probable
that the shipment made from this
city is the stock Mr. Spriecke is offer
ing a liberal reward for. The sheriff
has the matter in hand and while the
thief may not be apprehended at this
late date, Mr. Spriecke will soon
know what became of his cattle. The
shipment here will be traced to the
purchaser in South Omaha and as
the cattle were not fat they will be
found doubtless in some man's feed
yard. It is the boldest piece of
thievery ever perpetrated in the
county and bad Mr. Spriecke been
more prompt in notifying the officers,
the thief might have been caught, as
he has had so much time to get away,
his apprehension is next to impos

from Washington to the effect that his

How They IluwL
Did you ever notice how a pig will
squeal when you pull its scrawny little
tail? And when it devo'ops into a full
grown hog and you fail to dolo out the
required amount of slop, it jjive vent
to full-grown squeals and loud, bois
terous grunts.. From the (squeak-,
squeals and tho vigorous grunts of the
"fusion" organ in this city, I am led
to infer there is a small democratic
sty here overcrowdoJ with this class
of quadrupeds. They are mad as w ild
boars because they c in not longer
manipulate the pops of this city, as
elsewhere, and have proceeded to
roast them to a soal brown. Not only
that, but they have taken occasion to
hop onto me all spraddled out because I
have dared to assert myself in opposi
tion to their nefarious schemes for
office-getting. I trust they will keep
on with their abuse, because I believe
and trust It will be the means of show
ing to the honest populists tho cloven
feet and the spiked appendixes of the.s
Those novices in the cause of reform
accuse me of being "sore" because I
failed to get a job at the hands of the
demo-pop gang now in charge of the
state's affairs. Well, now, admitting
this as true, when it is known through
out the state that I was a populist be
fore these political demo-pop pigmies
shed their political swaddlings, why
should I not make a kick if I honestly
believed the wire-pullers and machine
workers were laying plans to rob hon
est populists throughout tho state of
that which rightfully belonged to
them the reward of labor well done.
But these fellows know as much
about my position regarding state jobs
as a hog does about latin. They have
probably never learned of the sacri
fices I have made in the interest of
populist supremacy in this state; they
have never hoard of tho promises
made to me or the refusals I have
made of certain positions. Be that as
it may, I trust these political amateurs
and political pilferers will get all the
offices they Want, but not with the aid
of the honest populists of this or any
other state. As for me, I have as
much use for a republican shyster as I
have for a democratic black-leg, po
litically speaking. Neither lepreeent
my ideas, or those of my pop friends,
on money or competitive reform.
I remember well when the demo
crats of this state laid down with the
republicans, in hopes of getting a few
loaves and fishes. Have we, as pops,
not the same right to lay down with
the republicans, if we wish, in order
to repudiate a gang" of political huck
sters, who wish to use us as cats-paws
to extricate their chestnuts?
They seem to be awful sore because
I went into tho Lincoln Journal with
a communication to air iny views and

where myself and friends could give
voice to our grievances, did they con
